Wild Olive cottage is situated on the Bainskloof Pass and is a cosy 2 bedroom cottage with wonderful views of the Ceres Mountains – relax in the hammock on the stoep and watch the mountains turn pink at sunset and then dine outside under a million sparkling stars.
Cook up a storm, drink, eat and relax or for the more energetic, hike up to Bushman’s Cave and take a shower under the waterfall or do another of the hikes on the Estate. Take or Fauna and Flora booklet with you and try to spot some of the amazing species we are fortunate to have at Bastiaanskloof.
Take a stroll down to the river and have a swim and relax on the grass or deck next to the river.
In Winter, light a roaring fire and read one of the books or magazines in the cottage (one of the owners has a bit of a magazine obsession so plenty of the latest ones around…).
For sporting enthusiasts, the cottage has a flatscreen TV and DSTV or pop down to the Calabash Bush Pub to watch sporting events with the locals!

Firstly thanks you for a lovely weekend at Bastiaanskloof in Wild Olive Cottage. It is such a cozy and well equipped little place, we savoured every minute spent there. In fact, it has the same vibe and feel as our little sea cottage at Castle Rock outside Simonstown – just the mountain version! We just love the magic which is Bastiaanskloof. We felt so lucky, so special and so spoilt. Bastiaanskloof is a special place where one can drink deep, relax and revive your soul.
Hope to be back soon!
